I embeded a WAV file (mpeglayer3) on an HTML page. It works fine on my computer. When I uploaded it to my web site, it took its time to upload, and the player box came up on the page, but I can't press play and no sound comes out. I asked the website people and they told me I can not stream sound, it can only download onto others' computers. Is the mpeglayer3 streaming sound? I didn't think so. When I uploaded a video file, it worked properly on the website. Any suggestions?

Try compressing the mp3 in around 96khz(?) instead of higher values like 320 or 128. The smaller filesize, the faster or more likely it is to load. Also, check your paths.

The bit rate is 16 kbps, mono, audio sample rate: 8khz, MPEG layer-3.
The html code is:
<embed src="b10.wav"loop=0"></TR>
I read you should include two codes on the same page so that every kind of browser can hear it. The other code is:
<bgsound src="b10.wav"loop=0"></TR>
Even with the first code only it still doesn't work.
I also included the wav file in the folder, of course...

If it's an mp3, it should be b10.mp3, not b10.wav - rename the file.
